Yes, I am asking for somebody else.   

Is it OK if we turn RP into a spontaneous, decentralized digital market place?

Of course, the Port and Co. blanks they print on probably cost Jeff about 14¢ when he buys a million at a time, so he probably doesn't want to.
 
Which ones?  I'm not thrilled with the port & co shirts we just did. They were okay, but not great, and I had to compromise a lot on colors.   

Also - just got our shirts w/ your logo. They are great and people love the smoke machine ones. I think I will print a bunch for the boat show this year. We learned a bit about the process too and the order of colors. Have a few little glitches but the local guys we are using are just opening back up, so hopefully it will smooth out. I made one for you and it will be packed with your licensing fee and in the mail shortly.

These are the ones I got
... wasn't paying attention to the "red dot" aspect of it but hey you can get palm trees too if you want. This listing mostly pairs 2 random colors/patterns, but I think you can search and find all one color...

I once printed up a t-shirt that said:   

God is coming.  And she is pissed.


I gave it to my Aunt who is a social worker by training.   I think she liked the idea but did not wear it.

Oh, I wasn't thinking in terms of "Thor" the Marvel superhero if that's what you meant as far as Disney stuff.  It's odd how much infringement stuff I come across through Amazon Merch - I guess they eventually get caught.  Red Bubble is rampant with it, but they do have a lot more products, and most of the sellers seem to actually be designers or illustrators, not grifters who just pump out those unimaginative, humorless things that clog up search results: white type on black, using Arial, Georgia, Campus (or some "college" type font), or even Comic Sans.   Red Bubble's biggest drawback I've seen is their shipping charges.

I would actually go to a site that curated products as sort of a hybrid of the traditional store and the Amazon throw everything in there and let the search engine sort it out. Of course that depends on a curator with taste, but there ought to be value added in someone saying, "Out of all the Stable Genius shirt's I've seen, SFWs is by far the nicest. (it is)"

My other whinge is the crappy image sizing and placement on the shirts and crappy shirt quality.

I've always found Amazon's search algorithms completely dysfunctional, but I get your message. Thanks anyway. 
The question at hand then would be selling things over a local counter, instead of the global online re-seller. Developing an online-marketplace, based locally could be another option. Thing is, global internet cannot keep off local bizz. (Thank God.)

2 cents.
